Mathematicians in Love is a science fiction novel written by Rudy Rucker.
Bela and Paul are working towards their Ph.D's under the direction of a mad math genius named Roland Haut, they invent a para-computer called "GoBubble" that predicts the future. They are both involved in a love triangle with Alma.
Publishers Weekly in their review said that "Rucker cleverly pulls off a romantic comedy about mathematicians in love." and that "While most of the mathematical flights may stun hapless mathophobes, Rucker's wild characters, off-the-wall situations and wicked political riffs prove that writing SF spoofs, like Bela's rock music avocation, "beats the hell out of publishing a math paper." Carl Hays in his review for Booklist said that "in a riotously twisting plot, complete with hypertunnels, alien shellfish from a parallel universe, and an improbable resolution to the threesome’s romantic dilemma, Rucker pulls out all the stops for one of his most entertaining yarns to date."
